I sit in front of my TV and hear all the news about people all over the world suffering, dying, never having the "luxury" of saying goodbye to their loved ones and in most cases in Italy now not even seeing their loved ones after death. Most are considered "lucky" just to receive their ashes. It's something I pray doesn't occur here and as unlikely as this may sound it's a real possibility. Our health system will be stretched, will it be stretched to the point of failure like what we are seeing in Italy? I guess I'm just having a hard time processing what is happening to those people and can't fathom, no, can't imagine that may happen here at home. I try to understand what it must be like to be told you're losing your wife, son, daughter, parent, or grand parent knowing they are suffering, right down the street and you can't even see their face, likely for the last time. I get on here and find myself in some BS heated debate about states, politicians, or just some fucking what-if's our country could have done and I feel like a petty little man. All our arguing about Where, When, How this all got started will not save one of those loved ones. We need to stop focusing on it's start and focus on it's ending and unless attitudes/actions change direction here in the US and we act as a Nation we will be the next Italy.
